Might be a duplicate of Bug 815568. Do you agree?
Comment 2 Werner Huppertz 2012-11-27 21:35:52 PST
Yes it is the same behvior. But a second bug is detected, lists do not work, only first list member is added.
Comment 3 Philipp Kewisch [:Fallen] 2012-11-29 04:48:22 PST
Werner, are you comfortable with applying patches or testing nightly builds? If so, could you either apply the patch in bug 815568 or wait for tomorrow's nightly builds and test them to see if your issue still exists?

Comment 9 Stefan Sitter 2013-01-10 01:46:10 PST
The patch mentioned in comment 3 landed in Lightning 2.0. Maybe someone could test if the problem still exists using one of the Thunderbird + Lightning test build combination listed in
Comment 10 Phil Davis 2013-01-26 09:22:14 PST
I tried all the following TB+Lightning combinations:
17.0.2 + 1.9
18.0b1 + 2.0b1
19.0b1 + 2.1b1
20.0a2 + 2.2a2
Bug 1 is a problem in all these versions - I type a distribution list name when inviting attendees and press return. Only the first member of the distribution list is added to the attendee list.
Bug 2 - Removing members from an appointment - this worked for me in all the above versions. The OP listed 16.0, so perhaps this issue was fixed in 17.0.2+1.9?

Created attachment 710226 [details] [diff] [review]
patch - v1

In the code there's a variable with a wrong name.
As far as I can see this patch fixes without other to add.
Comment 12 Phil Davis 2013-02-06 07:16:10 PST
When I make the 1-line change to calendar-event-dialog-attendees.xml from 710226 (by hand[editing the appropriate line of the Lightning 1.9 addon code in my TB profile) it fixes the issue:
1 . Using list to enter members of an appointment in lightning
So this fix will backporrt very easily, if a Lightning bugfix release is done to go with the Thunderbird 17.0.n official release sequence.

This is bug marked as RESOLVED, but which versions of thunderbird have it resolved?

The problem still happens on 

thunderbird  17.0.7+build1-0ubuntu0.12.04.1

installed today.

Best regards
Comment 18 Stefan Sitter 2013-07-02 10:35:18 PDT
It is fixed in Lightning 1.9.1 that was released on March 6, 2013. Maybe you are still using Lightning 1.9?
Comment 19 Gustavo Homem 2013-07-02 14:56:59 PDT
Stefan, you are right. I'm using Lightning 1.9.

Thanks for your comment. I will upgrade and report back.
Comment 20 Gustavo Homem 2013-07-03 12:57:04 PDT
It is indeed fixed on Lightning 1.9.1 (tested with Thunderbird 17.0.7) Thanks again.
